Riot - Camino
Our LCM featured artist today is Mississippi native Camino. He blends R&B verses with rousing Southern rock choruses, crafting a great hip-hop & country fusion. From playing guitar in the hardcore scene on the Warped Tour at 16 to recording a track with B.o.B., the charismatic 23-year-old singer-songwriter co-signed by T-Pain and Akon, has a melting pot of influences embedded in his signature sound. Camino left Mississippi for Atlanta, where he was homeless, struggling to make it in the music industry. Eventually, he found a mentor in Marcus Rippy and learned from producers DJ Spinz and Polow da Don before he defined his own soulful country roots. His affinity for the past and present finds him deep-diving into Elvis' blues and tapping into Adele's soaring vocals. The rising star released his fiery first single "Riot" in July, which has garnered more than 150,000 Spotify streams. He's currently self-producing his 10-track debut album on Columbia Records.
